Gypsy - Error message - Image extends beyond cutting mat area

How best to deal with this error message?
Here's how
1) change the mat size and save the file. open it again and check. Works in case you have downloaded someone else's files 2) Also you can try using actual size and reducing the image. When a image uses the layered function - like for eg the dress from paper doll the image's height unless you turn the real dial size on (that a with a line above and below it on the basic menu) is actually the original doll's size. So even though you think the image is 4-5 inches it'll be 13 according the gypsy. So turn on the actual dial size and then 4 means 4.
This is the usual number one culprit in these cases. Reducing also takes care of the following problem - If in case you have selected more than one image and if they have been grouped together one might have moved off the mat , so with reduction you can delete this image. 3) Zoom and check if you have inadvertently added another image. Then it's easier to grab hold and delete of that stray image. Setting the cursor size small also helps in grabbing without getting the double cursrs.
If these method fail - well just save and come back. If its still there dump it and start over. Gypsy is sure finicky sometimes.
